BioWare has revealed the schedule for the returning recurring events in March 2022. Get your bikes out of the carbonite!
And so, the release of Legacy of the Sith and the 7.0 expansion are behind us. New month, new (or rather returning old) events are coming.
While we wait for BioWare to release SWTOR 7.1 on PTS and fix the bugs in the Elom Flashpoint (among other things), let’s take a look at what events could occupy your mind. You know, in case you have not farmed them out already.
Bounty Contract Week
The Bounty Contract week, sadly, has not presented anything new for a very long time. I don’t know why BioWare doesn’t add new quest or vendor items from time to time. But, hey, if you want to live out your dream of being a Bounty Hunter, there’s no better place to show off your skills in March.
Date: March 8th – 15th, 2022 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 5:00AM PST/12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Level 15+
“For a limited time, the Bounty Brokers Association has opened its doors to anyone willing to take on their dangerous contracts, offering an opportunity for both seasoned and rookie hunters to prove their skills and bring crime syndicates and violent gangs to justice!
Each day, you can sign up for one standard Henchman contract and one high-profile Kingpin Contract, and each may take you to a separate planet. Complete five standard contracts to unlock Kingpin missions with bigger loot! Head to the fleet now, invite your friends and visit representatives of the Association to get started on your contracts!”
- Reputation with the Bounty Brokers Association
- Bounty Tracker’s Armor Set and Contract Hunter’s Armor Set
- Assassin’s Bowcaster and Elite Tracker’s Bowcaster weapons
- Lobelot, Swamp Kell Drake, and Drink Server Probe Mini-pets
- BH-7X Custom Hunter Mount
- … and more!
The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally
The All World Ultimate Swoop Rally is one of the newer events that joined the roster. There’s a chance if you have been away from the game that you may have not even seen it yet, although it pops quite often. Seeing how it’s a new event and not overly exploited over the years (yet).
If you need a hand, you can always consult the Complete Guide to the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally Event. There you will learn how to start it, what you can do, what story and rewards await you. The speeders are not as fun to ride as you might remember from KOTOR, but it’s a nice event to pass the time while you wait for Patch 7.1 and the new Operation. Or the Weapons as Outfits feature. Or both.
Date: March 22nd – 29th, 2022 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Levels 20+
“In the growing shadow of war, swoop fans across the galaxy descend on Dantooine, Tatooine, and even Onderon for the sport’s biggest spectacle—The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally! They’re packing the stands, eager to take their minds off their troubles and cheer their favorite swoop gangs. The bikers are here to take on dangerous challenge courses, show off their piloting skills, and flaunt their souped-up swoop bikes. The thunder of the engines, the deafening applause from the fans, the wind battering their helmets… there’s no bigger rush for these thrill seekers.
Despite their reputation as wild rebels whose makeshift courses disregard local districting restrictions, swoop gangs aren’t a serious threat to anyone–something all true swoop fans know! They just love adrenaline-pounding speed, sweet jumps, and big explosions, and the All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally combines all three in one crowd-pleasing package. The biggest gangs on the circuit — Horizon’s Razor, the Pit Screamers, and the Blatant Beks — are ready to show their fans a great time.“
- Swoop Rally Mounts (regular and gold versions)
- Swoop Gang Outfits
- Promotion Droid Mini-pets
- Various Stronghold Decorations
- …and more!
Ten Year Anniversary
Ahh, well. I suppose we will continue to see this “event” announced every single month. It would be nice if BioWare at least update is when there are new items available at the vendor.
The Ten Year Anniversary “event” is actually a vendor that you should check from time to time for new items. The NPC will be present all the way through 2022 and into January 2023.
Don’t get me wrong, there are cool items to get from the vendor, but this is hardly an event. BioWare is using the word “event” wrong in this case.
Date: December 14th, 2021 – January, 2023 (BEGINS AND ENDS AT 12:00PM GMT)
Requirement: Levels 10+
“We are happy to celebrate out 10th anniversary on December 20th! With this being a huge milestone, we are going to celebrate the anniversary all year long! To mark this occasion, a special “Anniversary Personnel” vendor can be found on the fleet with new Class Ship Stronghold Decorations. All previous anniversary rewards will also be available during this limited time as well. Alongside this, both the Coruscant and Dromund Kaas Strongholds will be available for only ten credits each!”
- Faction-based fireworks
- Commemorative Statues of HK-51, Valkorian, and Malgus
- Senya Holo-statue
- Fireworks Celebratory Backpack
- Several Stronghold Decoration posters
- Class Ship Stronghold Decorations
- … and more!
